Services Available

We provide complementary therapies, counselling, and therapeutic group activities, all free of charge, on referral by a health care professional. 

Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

A life-threatening illness can affect your life in many ways, including how you see yourself, relate to others, feel about life and think about the future. Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can help support you through this process. Family members and carers can also benefit from the opportunity to explore their thoughts and feelings when a loved one has a life-threatening diagnosis. For more information, you can download our leaflets on Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) by clicking on the links below.


Complementary Therapies

Our complementary therapies work alongside medical care to offer relief from symptoms and the side effects of cancer and other treatments. They provide an experience of relaxation and relief for patients whose day to day life can be dominated by medical treatment, pain and suffering, and who may be experiencing fatigue, breathlessness, insomnia, anxiety, tension and nausea. For more information about our complementary therapies, please click on the links below.



Therapeutic Group Activities

Our various therapeutic group activities are designed to help people develop tools and learn skills to help support them live with and through a life-threatening illness. At the same time they are meeting with others in similar positions and can benefit from the opportunity to listen to experiences that resonate with their own. All of our groups are taught or facilitated by experienced professionals. For more information about our group activities, please click on the links below.

The Sara Lee Trust is a much needed service for patients who have a medical condition which is severely impacting on their lives. The service is invaluable for providing patients with supportive care either through complementary therapies or counselling, when they are struggling to cope with their situation. Not only is it a great support for the patients but this also extends to family members who are often just as stressed if not more so than the patient.
